Nathan "Nate" Phelps (born November 22,[1] 1958) is an American-Canadian author, LGBT rights activist,[2] and public speaker on the topics of religion and child abuse. He is the son of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps. He is known for being excommunicated from the church and from his own father at age 17. This was because of his different and mostly opposite beliefs of his father.

Phelps was born in Topeka, Kansas. He lives in Calgary, Alberta.
